This is a weekend workshop meeting 9am-5pm on Saturday and Sunday, April 13 and 14, 2019.
Fold forming is a traditional technique for hammer working metal that produces a wide variety of very volumetric organic shapes. During this class we will explore many different folds including line folds, T folds, Pleated folds, and star folds. Proper hammer use and technique will be emphasized. Students will practice these fold forming techniques in copper and then translate those techniques they especially like into silver. Students can bring their own metals (copper and silver sheet – 24 gauge is best) or you can purchase these as needed from the instructor.
